easy mini mixer meatloaf.

if your like this little guy and looking for some easy winter grub.
then this is a good recipe for you.
unless of course you don't eat meat.
because then i can't help you.
they don't call it meatloaf for nothing.

i use my kitchen-aid mixer to make this recipe.
gather your ingredients.
some how the 2 pounds of ground beef didn't make it to the photo shoot.
must have been one lazy cow in it's former life.
this is how much you need of everything.

2 cups ketchup
2 tbl. spicy brown mustard
2 tbl. brown sugar
2 pounds ground beef
2 large eggs, beaten
1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
1 cup plain dry bread crumbs
(sometimes i use stove-top stuffing mix if i am out of bread crumbs)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
cooking spray
place ketchup, mustard & brown sugar in your mixer.
i use the flat beater attachment.
beat on speed 2 for 30 seconds 
(just so the brown sugar dissolves)
take out 1 cup of the mixture and set aside.
then add all the remaining ingredients to the mixer bowl.
(i'm guessing your smart enough to not throw in the can of cooking spray)
my guess is your mixer would never be the same.
mix on speed 2 again for about 2 minutes.
it does all the work for you!!
divide into 6 equal portions.
i do mine like this.
then take each section and form a rounded loaf shape.
give it a long dimple on top.
place them on a generously coated baking dish with edges
you'll see in a minute why you need edges,
unless your into cleaning your oven
after every meal.
bake at 375*
for 40 minutes.
when it is done, take it out and spoon your reserve ketchup mixture
on each loaf...pop it back in for an additional 10 minutes.
now do you see why you need edges :)
looks yummy, tastes yummy!!
the black stuff is just burnt hamburger grease.
better to be on the pan than in the food.

...and you thought your kitchen-aid was just for baking.


  1. looks very yummy for the tummy(:
    without a kitchen aid mixer bet it takes lot of time to stir?



i heart comments!!
